Game Changer

The Ruger American is a great rifle but the trigger is absolutely horrible. This was the best purchase I have made for this gun, installation was easy and made shooting at 1000 yards way easier. Will run Timney in all my rifle from here on out

Packaging

Ordered a replacement trigger for my Ruger American rifle . Shipping was quick . Trigger came with great directions for install and went in as stated. Trigger pull is precisely and crisp. Love it. Only complaint I gripe about was trigger is just loose inside your plastic package. A little unnerving when I picked up box and sounded like parts rattling around inside. Everything was fine but one wrap of bubble wrap around trigger would insure no scratches. Great trigger. Thanks.

What Is Trigger Pull weight?

Pull weight is the amount of pressure, in ounces or pounds, required to fire the trigger. Or in other words, how hard you have to squeeze the trigger to shoot your rifle. Timney Trigger experts at our Phoenix, Arizona plant hand-test every trigger in its intended action and then set the pull weight at our factory standard, 3 lbs.

If you prefer a different pull weight you simply select it from the drop down above and your Timney Trigger will be customized to your preference.
The #1 reason to replace your factory trigger with a Timney is accuracy. A lighter, crisper, more consistent trigger pull will make you more accurate with your firearm.

Below is a guide for pull weight selection:

2-2.5 pounds
Light trigger pull weights are great for people shooting lighter weight rifles as they can help keep you on target during the shot. Also common weights for target shooting from a bench.

3-3.5 pounds
By far the most common trigger pull weights -this is great for virtually all applications including target shooting, hunting and 3-gun competitions.

4.0 pounds+
Heavy trigger pull weights are good for cold weather hunting or applications where you may be shooting with gloves on.

This trigger works with these rifles:

  • Ruger® American All-Weather Model
  • Ruger® American Compact
  • Ruger® American Compact All-Weather
  • Ruger® American Crossfire II with Vortex Scope
  • Ruger® American Magnum
  • Ruger® American Predator
  • Ruger® American Ranch
